St. Paul, Minn. – Aug. 22, 2012 – Colder Products Company, the leader in the design and manufacture of single-use connection technology and connectors for the life sciences markets, announces that its Steam-Thru® Connections product offering is a finalist for the Technology of the Decade award in the manufacturing pillar category for the 2012 BioProcess International Awards. The awards, whose theme is “Honoring a Decade of BioProcess,” recognize the products, services, partnerships and people that have had the greatest positive impact on bioprocessing.
The first single-use connection technology to create a sterile connection between stainless steel processing equipment and single-use systems, Steam-Thru Connections enable a quick and easy sterile connection, minimize risk of cross-contamination, and reduce labor for cleaning and cleaning validation. The Steam-Thru Connection II also provides the ability to steam-off the connection after fluid transfer to provide a sterile disconnection that isolates the production suite or its operators from hazardous process fluids.
“When introduced, Steam-Thru was the first polymer-based SIP (steam-in-place) connection. It has become a widespread connection solution and a common replacement for stainless threeway valves,” said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets. “The industry’s acceptance of Stream-Thru connectors in both upstream and downstream applications has led to Colder’s ongoing development of a broad range of sterile connect and sterile disconnect technology.”
BioProcess International (BPI) is a business-to-business publication focused on the development and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals and therapeutics. Finalists were determined through a judging process by their peers and industry experts. Deloitte & Touche, LLC, tabulated and certified the results. The 2012 BioProcess International Awards culminates with a special awards dinner and ceremony taking place on Oct. 9, 2012, at the BioProcess International Conference and Exhibition in Providence, R.I.
